Hi, Andy!

Since nobody replied to this - I wouldn't know how this is done.  I
guess there is some UNIX arcana that allows one to implement
non-blocking behaviour. As memory access will cause the blocking, we
can probably not check for this via poll/select. Do you have any
information about this? Is it possible to test whether a page is in
memory, and whether one can do the equivalent of a poll/select on
